...snipped lengthy 'Tueschenesque' paragraphs...
You are manipulating quotes, I never said that. Where are the Mods, he fakes
... Okay, he's not a friend of extended multi-liners. Hi, Günther, if you sort out postings with a ruler, you can put a Tueschenesque label on it.
"Schachfan" Rolf Tueschen. Oh yes, he flooded the forums daily with his disputes. We've met him long enough on the CSS forum, right? I didn't even know when he stopped writing here in CCC. Comparing him to Socrates, he liked it. Like the Greek philosopher, he wanted people to think about themselves and realize that they know much less than they pretend. I hope he didn't have to slurp the poison cup, too. He was a zealot with a sense of mission and could become quite evil.
Well, even in my postings not everything is notation and code and chat-suitable short form. Against Rolf's speeches, however, my posts are really only short notes, for sure. There are few long writers and many daily habit writers, that balances itself.
I didn't know that you just have an agenda vs. AlphaZero instead of searching for a solution to a problem.
Your first post in this thread asked for sth different:
I am looking for a GUI where you can set individual time controls for each engine (UCI) in a match or tournament. So Shredder plays for example 40/20' and Stockfish with 5' Blitz. As far as I can see, it's not possible...
Exactly this is possible in cc-cli no matter what you think.
I have to agree with you somehow, that was a bit confusing. I should have made the DeepMind event the topic right away. HGM took it out of me relatively quickly. But I can't expect someone to follow a whole thread chronologically (especially not without thread view and in "Tueschen style":)
Besides, I have no agenda for or against anyone, I just want to see if the hypothesis is correct.

even when they say one move per minute this could mean two different ways of setting up.
So I assume that it was actually 1'/move for both sides, as long as no other thing is known. A wrong information does not seem plausible to me for any reason. What do you mean, there' s two different ways?
BTW, one minute with this gigantic hardware! I should estimate what a move time comes out with my Ryzen7 1800x.

(note that I was too lazy to remove the 6 plies start position - those moves are obviously counted - therefore it moved the first move in around 24s.)
To be absolutely sure (as I said, I must first familiarize myself with Cutechess-Cli):
1/6 means 6 seconds/move and 1/60 would be 60 seconds per move. Yeah, that's it, sapprament? Simply set the number of moves to 1. Brilliant! Why didn't you exemplify that right away?! Then you can do 1/60 against 40/2400 right? At 40/2400 the engine's time management can fully develop its smart heuristics, while at 1/60 after 1 minute the brutal cut comes.
Maybe everything will work with CLI, which you have always been saying. Jp and Ozymandias are convinced that "st=N" can be combined with tc. The instructions may be somewhat ambiguous.
Unbelievable, yesterday I thought it was impossible and now there are several solutions. But the last word is in practice. Thank you for your efforts. I'll be back.
